As artist Andy Warhol famously remarked, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." Forty-plus years after he made this pronouncement, most people would probably agree that his prediction appears to have come true. It has become possible, in large part, due to the vast audiences of hundreds of channels of scripted television and unscripted reality TV shows, the new media digital revolution dominated by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and countless blogs and websites.
Mr. Miller is a Managing Partner with Fox Rothschild law firm and serves as Chair of the Entertainment Law Department of the firm’s Los Angeles offices, working with numerous celebrities in the entertainment industry. In his book, he digs beneath the commonly understood textbook definition of fame, characterizing it as that defining point in your life or career that has the potential and capacity to actually take you to a higher level of success and to reach your personal or business goals.
Throughout his career, the author has either worked with, or observed, many celebrity artists, athletes and other high profile people who have achieved or exceeded their financial and personal dreams. Many of these people, he writes, spent much of their resources, time and efforts pursuing their dreams, while pursuing fame and fortune. These include people who became instantly famous as a result of being on reality TV, winning a lottery, or getting a big promotion at their job. His primary goal is to make people stop and give real consideration to some of these issues in an effort to motivate them to understand that once they have reached a certain level of fame and fortune, it is extremely important to spend quality time, energy and research on developing basic plans and strategies in order to sustain their success.
